First it was Wal-Mart, now libraries in Mississippi are banning America: The Book. Same reason as Wal-Mart too, naked Supreme Court justices. Wal-Mart can sell whatever they want, that’s their right.
But libraries shouldn’t ban an entire book because of one page. And that’s exactly what Robert Willits, director of the Jackson-George Regional Library System is doing. He said, “If they had published the book without that one picture, that one page, we’d have the book.”
If the public really had a problem with the book, would it be on the New York Times Bestseller list? or be named Book of the Year by Publishers Weekly?
